    Tabs in Outline level 1 (2003)

    Dear Lougners,

    In my outline I am working in, there is a .5 tab space following the outline number (before the text is manually typed in). Is there a way to reduce this to .25? I tried changing the hanging indent to .25 instead of .5, but this did not help. I also tried changing the tab itself in the style that is associated with level 1 of the outline, but curiously, no tab was set (there is only a .5 default tab).

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Regards,

    JMT

    You have to set the distance between the number and the text in the Bullets and Numbering dialog, not in the Paragraph dialog.

    Agreed, Hans, but where? In the Customize Outline Numbered List dialogue box, "Tab space after" is set to 0. I see nothing setting the tab to .5".

    Best regards,

    Try setting the "Tab space after" to 0.25".

    Hello Hans,

    The only thing that that does is to create a tab on the left of .25", but the space between the number in my outline level 1 and the following text remains at .5". Incidentally, this first outline level is set to centered, not left aligned, although I don' t think that makes any difference.

    Regards,

    Do you mean that the entire paragraph is centered or that the number position is centered?
